A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM to Run 7/5-19 at Highland Bowl

July 5
12:30 AM 2014

The Shakespeare Players program of the Rochester Community Players will present eleven performances of A Midsummer Night's Dream, by William Shakespeare, July 5 to 19, 2014. Performances will be presented every night between July 5 and 19, except Mondays and Thursdays. All performance times are 8:00 PM. There is no admission charge for this FREE Shakespeare in the Park production (donations will be solicited).

This production will be unprecedented for a regular Shakespeare company: The entire production is double-cast with voice and signing (American Sign Language) actors. Every character will be simultaneously presented in voice and in sign. This production is being directed by Luanne Davis Haggerty, a member of the staff of the Theater Department at the National Technical. We will be circulating a more detailed press release of the concept behind this production within the next two weeks.

Performance dates (All performances at 8:00 PM)
Saturday & Sunday, July 5 & 6
Tuesday & Wednesday, July 8 & 9
Friday, Saturday and Sunday July 11-13
Tuesday and Wednesday July 15 & 16
Friday and Saturday July 18 and 19.

This production is co sponsored by the Monroe County Parks Department. This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Arts & Cultural Council for Greater Rochester.
